A lever is a special case of the application of the law of moments. It is a rigid bar, straight or bent, which is capable of rotation about a fixed point or a fixed line, called axis of rotation. This fixed point or the axis of rotation is called the fulcrum. An effort E is applied at the point A of the lever to overcome a resistance (or load) at another point B, as shown in the diagram.
